Last July 27, Cle de Peau finally opened its very first store in Greenbelt 5 where guests got to celebrate this momentous event. Another internationally acclaimed luxury beauty brand joins our country, which means that there is market here that is clamoring for this brand to come in. No need to shop for this while travelling or having the products ship here with shockingly high duties. Yes, Cle de Peau is here.

Located at the ground floor, clients will be greeted with a store that just exudes luxe with its shiny gold and matte black interiors. Crystal rocks that mimic the stars hung from the ceiling. There will be facial services available soon, too!

For those who are new to the brand, and those who haven't travelled for a while, Cle de Peau started in Japan in 1982. The name, in French, means "the key to skin's beauty" which is why their logo resembles that of a key, combining the letters C and P.

Their hero product? La Crème, or The Cream, that has skin-empowering illuminator and a rare bio-ingredient called the CeraFerment extract that aids in skin rejuvenation and regeneration from within. The result of this combination is slowing the signs of aging with smooth and tight skin.

The price tag? It may cost P34,000 per pot but the reviews have been nothing but positive. Its rich texture glides on smoothly sans the stickiness with over 60 ingredients that make up this potent pot. And the pot in itself is a gem of a vessel for this wonder cream. The packaging reflects light from all angles, representing the results from applying this cream. So we asked for some tips on how to make the most of out of this pot, and here's how.

1. At the end of the night-time skincare ritual, take a pearl-sized amount of La Crème with the spatula.
2. Smooth over skin.
3. Press palms against cheeks and glide from the chin to the temples. Repeat three times.

La Creme is from their Key Radiance Line which has many other supplementing skincare products to check out. Cle de Peau also has cosmetic products with their concealer being considered as one of their bestsellers.
